Halloween Birthday Bash for Kids
Who doesn't love a good Halloween bash? I sure do! So, I just about died, with excitement, when my son suggested a Halloween Birthday Party.
Check out his Halloween Party made perfect for kids...
The finger food table was decorated with Halloween decor I pulled from the garage. Use what you already have!
Dollar Tree had cute Halloween decorations including the wood signs (Glitter Skulls & the middle sign) for $1 each. Check out your local Dollar Tree to stay on the cheap.
Halloween Finger Food Ideas
White Cheetos: Bag of Bones
Carrots: Witches Fingers
White Chocolate Covered Pretzels: Bones
Homemade Cake Pops: Halloween Sprinkles & Eyeballs
I had just enough ham in my fridge to pull apart and place over this plastic skull head. It was the perfect creepy center piece for the cheese, meat, & cracker plate. His eyes are Wilton's Halloween Gummies.
On this table we, also, had Sweet Meat Balls (click here to find the recipe) & pizza. Sorry there is no picture. The pizza came in late.
Nothing like a good ol' bloody band-aid to snack on.
Graham Crackers with white icing & red gel icing. Just use your finger to dab the red gel icing, so it's nice and bloody. These were so good! I couldn't stop eating them.
I made these Halloween cake balls from trimmings of his Halloween birthday cake. The kids had a blast creating the cookies.
Witches Hat Cookies
- Flip over a Keebler Fudge Stripe cookie
- Trace the hole with Orange Frosting
- Top off with a Hershey's Kiss
- Oreo with a dab of frosting
- Place a Wilton Icing Decor on top
These cookies are a great way for the kids to get involved. I do the Oreo cookies every year. You can find any party theme.
My entry console table ended up being the perfect spot for the cake. The Halloween monster punch was easily accessible & the goody bags was ready to grab as the guest left.
More about the Cake
Y'all know how I feel about cake. Your party cake should be the center of the party. No one had to search for the Halloween cake. It was there when they walked in.
I wanted this Witch Cauldron Cake to be easy, but incredible. I asked my son what he thought the Witches Brew Cauldron Cake should have in it. Jax wanted bones, eyeballs, octopus legs, zombie hands & a witch.
He even came up with a story on how the witch was cooking her brew and accidentally fell in. You gotta love the imagination of a six-year-old.

More about the Monster Punch
For the Halloween Monster Punch with Dry Ice I kept it simple.
Dry Ice Monster Punch
- Witches Cauldron (Walmart)
- Dry Ice (Brookshires)
- 2 liter Ginger Ale
- 1 1/4 Cup Sugar
- 4 packets Strawberry Kiwi Koolaid
- 2 quarts water
- 2 (46 ounce) Pineapple juice
You can cut this punch recipe in half, but I needed enough to fill up this big witches cauldron.
Halloween Mystery Boxes
Halloween Sensory Games for the kids are a blast, but some of the 5 year olds didn't want to put their hands in a box full of scary stuff.
To make this box I used a wreath box (any box will work), purple & orange felt, craft glue, tissue paper, and googly eyes.
Elf Ears - Dried Apricots
Witches Tongues - Sliced Pickles
Monster Teeth - Corn Kernels & Almonds
Zombie Eyes - Peeled Grapes (great for kids to do)
Vampire Brains - Cooked Noodles w/ black food coloring
How to Peel Grapes?
- Boil water & have a bowl of ice water near by
- Put grapes in metal strainer. Dip in boiling water for 10sec
- Dip the grapes in ice water to chill
- Puncture the skin of the grape with a knife
- Have the kids sit at the table and peel the grapes
On your invitation mention it's a costume party!
Pirate, Princesses & Super Heroes Too!
It's a costume party & we're inviting you!
Jax had a great 6th Birthday. He is growing in to a sweet and caring gentleman, just like his daddy. I am one proud Mommy. Do you remember his 1st cowboy birthday? I'll never forget :)
My one regret. I usually get a family picture or a picture with me & the birthday boy, but this time I didn't. I don't know how I forgot. I regret being behind the camera the entire time & not in front of it.
Thank you for following along! Let me know if you have any questions? What's your favorite thing about this Halloween Birthday Party? What would you add to your kids Halloween Bash? I'd love to know.
